IP Key (“Intellectual Property: A Key to Sustainable Competitiveness”) is a three year project running from July 2013 - June 2016 intended to make China’s intellectual property (IP) framework more effective, fair, transparent, and otherwise based upon best practices. The project, funded by the European Commission and implemented and co-funded by the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) with support from the European Patent Office (EPO), builds on the past EU-China IPR2 project amongst other EU-China initiatives. IP Key aims to meet its objective via implementing a number of activities covering all types of IP rights that advocate for change in the Chinese system and provide awareness on the workings of the Chinese and European IP systems.
